Goodbye Te Wero, Hello Panoni

lmp day 35

Phase One of Les Mills Pump is officially completed. Tomorrow is the beginning of Phase Two. Phase Two really steps things up. No more Pump and Burn with the exception of 1 day that it is paired with Hard Core Abs, no more 30 minute workout days. Hoping that Phase Two revs up the results. Honestly there are no complaints to be made as far as results go as of yet. Was losing on average 1.35 pounds per week. Not too shabby if i do say so myself.

Today’s workout was Hard Core Abs along with a 45 minute walk. Opted for the 45 minute walk today. Most of the day was fairly rough. Woke up feeling terrible and had some sulfur esque issues. Most of the day was wasted in bed. I am positive that it was due to my poor food choices yesterday. Lesson learned. Sure indulging in something within reason is not a terrible thing to do. But overindulgence is not good.

Day 34 of 120 – Totally Messed Up

Well it is Day 34 of 120 Days of Les Mills Pump. Tomorrow is the final day of Te Were – phase 1 then onto Panoni – phase 2.

lmp day 34

Today we took the kids along some extra kids to the pumpkin farm. Everyone had a great time. It was a wonderful day to share with our family and friends! I do have a confession to make while we were there I ate like total CRAP! I had a doughnut, some fries and a soda. Yikes. Honestly packing something healthy did not even come to mind. It was dumb to assume that there would be a healthy option at a pumpkin farm. To top if off when we got home I had a slice of pizza. Granted I only went approximately 200 calories over my daily set amount. But I did it by having a little junk and not enough good stuff. The only healthy thing about today was my breakfast and I had a bunch of water.

Once we got home and all of the kids that do not belong to me went home it was fairly late. Not to far after Mr. Baby’s bedtime routine needed to get started and then Emma decided to go sleep over somewhere so I had to pack her up. Once she left I was pooped. DH wanted to rent a movie and veg out so he ran put to pick up a flick and i went and got my pjs on. Then it was time to join the real world again and tell myself that I ate like crap and did not workout. A couple hours of walking around while baby-wearing doesn’t count as an actual workout. So Immediately I went downstairs and did my daily workout. In my pjs mind you. Had to do it and right at that moment because if i sat down it would not happen. So here I am after 45 minutes of Pump and Shred. Sore and tired as hell. But I did it. May of been reluctantly but  it still counts. It was not done half assed either.

Now it is time to veg out and watch our movie. Hope you all had a wonderful Saturday!!

Days 32 and 33 of 120

87 Days to go!!

87 Days to go!!

Yesterday was day 32 of 120 Days of Les Mills Pump. The good old stitched up hand was throbbing so I swapped yesterday with today. Day 33 was a rest day so I figured why not. So yesterday was deemed a rest day. spent the day at a doctor’s office (always fun), had lunch with a good friend, babysat, cooked dinner and all that fun stuff. And you can’t forget that it was Thursday and Vampire Diaries was on!

Today’s workout was Hard Core Abs and Flow. Got a few of the Plank to Push Ups in then had to drop down to a regular plank. Not that I couldn’t do them but it was hurting the good old hand. This knuckle thing is ridiculous. You never notice how much you need to use it until it is stitched up. I swear the thing looks like an evil smile face. During flow I didn’t get all the moves in for the same reason. My best was put into it and that is what matters.

Had a houseful of kids this evening, it was a lot of fun! Mr Baby stayed up past his baby bedtime relishing in all the fun and excitement. Hoping this means he sleeps good for me tonight! He even took a minute of his time to pinch where my stitches are and rip one of them a bit. OUCH!!

Food wise I have been pretty good at staying clean. Things that are not taste fake now so it is easier to not give into temptation. It will only keep getting easier!

Now it is time to finish watching Silver Bullet and try to get 475 more calories in for the day. Kind of behind!

Day 31

lmp day 31

Today’s scheduled workout was Pump and Burn. Not a whole ton to report about it. Just the same old Pump and Burn. It was highly productive but nothing fantastic happened during.

Did some shopping and got started on getting the Halloween Decorations up. Thought the black lights I put in the porch were going to start a fire and there was a beehive in the recess lighting out there. I about had a heart attack!

Well, that was about the jist of things for the day. Pretty uneventful.

Day 30 Progress Report (Weigh in)

lmp day 30

 

30 days down and 90 days to go! 90 sounds so much better than 120, that is for sure. Today’s workout was Hard Core Abs as well as a 45 minute walk.  Hard Core Abs went well. I gave the planks a try and got a few in before my hand was telling me that it was a bad idea. At that point it was taken down to a plain old regular plank resting on my forearms. At least I tried! The the 45 minute walk I hopped on the treadmill. I warmed up, then jogged until my knee was mad at me then walked briskly until I did a cool down. Was able to go at 6 mph for a mile and a half before slowing it down. That is actually pretty good for me lately. The old creaky knee likes to give me a hard time. I really wish I could go that long outside without having to pace it back to a power walk.

So today was the day to weigh and measure myself to see where I stand after these first 30 days. I was actually quite pleased with what the scale and measuring tape had to say. As far as the progress pictures go it doesn’t look like there was any change. I think I have a bit before any results obviously show.

  Day 1 Day 30 Day 60 Day 90 Day 120 Total Loss
CHEST 36” 35.5”       .5”

So I suppose a goal should be set for the next 30 days. I think I will stick with 5 and 5. 5 more pounds and 5 more inches. Got to keep it realistic.

 

Day 29 of 120 Was a Challenge!

lmp day 29

Whew! I am sore and exhausted. Today’s workout was Pump and Shred.  It was nice to have a new workout added into the routine. Spices things up and helps keep my interest. This is the third disc in the Les Mills Pump System, it is a 45 minute Body Pump workout that is 45 minutes long and it focuses on the back, chest, hamstrings, quads as well as the abs.

With the stitched up knuckle grasping a bar (especially with weight on it) is out of the question. It puts too much pressure on the stitches and possibility of ripping them out does not sound appealing in any way whatsoever. For a few things I was able to use the bar and just rest it on the heel of my hand or in the groove between the pointer finger and the thumb. For everything else I found a set of ankle weights in the basement and strapped them onto my wrist. Not much weight but I like the idea of using those over using no weight at all. During the plank portion (they call it a hover) I had to settle with just doing some extra crunches and an Iron Cross.

All in all the workout went great and I sweat my butt off. Hopefully literally because that is the point in doing all of this. Tomorrow is weigh in day. I am super nervous to see if my 30 day goal has been met. I really hope so because there have been just too many issues to work past and I honestly feel that it screwed everything up. We shall see though.

Nifty ankle weights on my wrists.   I love my Hot Pink workout mat BTW :)

Day 28 of 120

From the title you would know that today was day 28 of 120 days of Les Mills Pump. On the schedule today was Flow. Flow is a yoga workout. I did my best but was unable to put weight on my hand so it wasn’t the greatest workout. Sticking within physical limitations I did my best and that is what matters right? Please tell me I am right. Medical issues really seem to be getting in the way of getting through this program.

Really hoping I will be able to grasp and hold onto the weights tomorrow. If not the workout will have to be done sans weight. If my fingers are bent or any pressure is put on my hand it pulls at the stitches. Let me tell you. It is quite painful. At this moment it is still bleeding too so who knows. I wonder if she should have put more than two stitches in. Word of advice do not gash open your knuckle. Pain in the butt to do anything!

lmp day 28

I Am Not Graceful!

So yesterday was Day 26 of 120. My workout went really well and my leg was doing much better. Still a little tingly but I had regained feeling. Actually getting a quality workout was very pleasing!

Last night when getting ready to leave town for the race the following morning my babysitter showed up and was not looking good. We could just tell his sugars were through the roof and we had to get him to the er. Trip delayed and had to frantically find new sitters for the kids. so glad we did though he is now in the ICU and should have went into a diabetic coma but miraculously did not. His sugars were over 1000! We are worried about him but know he is in good hands. Thank goodness for small miracles. And for my awesome friends who filled in and helped get things done and my babies taken care up.

Today was race day and Day 27. I decided to switch today’s workout with a cardio day seeing I had RunScreamRun to do. It was a blast. Ran into an old friend and we got to do it together, it was so nice catching up!

After arriving home I decided to take a nap. boy was I tired! after that I had to take care of our new shipment of crickets for Sally. While in the basement I bumped my hand on the side of an aquarium and gashed my hand open without realizing it. It only hurt for a second and I never looked at it, just kept doing what I needed to do. After about 5 minutes I then realized that I was bleeding profusely and the cut was deep. Ended up having to find a sitter and headed into the emergency room. ended up with two stitches. It is right at the knuckle so I am having a hard time closing my hands. Really hoping tomorrow I can move it more because otherwise workouts will have to be done with no weights. If it isn’t one thing it is another!!!

Deja Vu?

lmp day 25

I feel like I have done this before..

Back to Day 25 today. Now that there is more feeling in my thigh balance and form are not as much of a problem. Granted there are still issues and the workout was not exactly comfortable, could be worse though. No workout could have happened.

Today’s scheduled workout was Hard Core Abs along with a 45 minute walk. Hard Core Abs went well, a tad bit harder than normal. Possibly due to the fact that I have skipped workouts this past week and that took its toll. In place of the 34 minute walk I did 35 minutes of low impact aerobics. Started to feel quite imbalanced so I skipped the last 5 minutes and went straight to the cool down. It was possible to push through it but I didn’t. It is not as easy to push through things when you have medical issues. In no way am I disappointed in the workout and it definitely got my heart rate up and a good sweat going.

So it looks like I am back in action! Just in time for the RunScreamRun 5k on Saturday. Definitely just power walking through this one. Dr didn’t give me the go ahead to try running. no matter what it will be a ton of fun and I am very much looking forward to my 3 mile power walk.

Food wise I am still on target. Eating clean, taking in 1,700 cals a day and drinking LOTS of water.

Time to make dinner and put together my costume for Saturday. Hope everyone has had a terrific Thursday!
